on thursday made a statement in acknowledgement that the united states is at war in a statement that could have been written by dick cheney and delivered by president obama. the 9/11 commission, as you'll recall, john, said al qaeda and extremists are at war with the united states, we were not at war with them. he's finally made that acknowledgement. the problem is, as you pointed out right there, is that he's giving mixed signals to the intelligence and law enforcement communities where he's treating this as a criminal justice problem in giving these foreign enemy combatants the full panaple of constitutional rights which they are not entitled. just this week, he's had a consistent approach. when you are taking the worst of the worsts giving them constitutional rights, bringing them to new york city to have a circus atmosphere of a trial. on the one hand, he's prosecuting very effectively with the military component escalating the drone attacks in afghanistan, pakistan and yemen. i've given him credit for that. on the other hand, closing gitmo, shutting down enhanced interrogation t
